The Game said he used a gun to command respect from Suge Knight.
The Game sat down for an interview with Nick Cannon, and he recalled a time he was at gunpoint courtesy of Suge Knight. Suge Knight might be serving 28 years behind bars, but the Death Row record producer’s name still carries weight in these streets. In a recent session on Cannon’s 106FM radio show, the Game says though he and Suge have mutual respect between them now, there was a time when they weren’t so great.
According to The Game, Knight did not like something he said about him in a song, so he pulled up. “I’ve been face-to-face with Suge, on both sides,” he said. “Suge rolled up on me one time after the Vibe Awards after-party with like, 60 gangsters,” the rapper said in the interview. “He wanted to press for something I said in my song about him, which I said it because I’m from Compton. I’m really from Compton. And I felt like Death Row and Suge and that whole era took so many lives that didn’t get mentioned. In the city. A couple of those was friends and big homies. So, I said a few things about Suge that he didn’t like and they rolled up on me,” The Game revealed.
The rapper claims, however, that he did not retreat and rather aimed a pistol of his own at the entourage. “I wasn’t having no type of back down. I drew my gun on all of them and I held my own and from that day forward, it was nothing but respect with Suge,” The Game continued. “I throw jabs sometimes, mainly ’cause I can and everybody knows that I’m an a****e sometimes, so that’s what I do. I talked to Suge from the inside and he does have a different perspective on life and he should have a different perspective on life because where else do you go from here with being how you used to be? Suge’s gotta be 50 plus,” the rapper added.
Elsewhere in the interview, The Game did mention that Suge should be given credit where due. “At the end of the day we can’t take away what he did give, the Pac albums, the Snoop albums, the whole Death Row label album,” Game said. Check out the full interview with Nick Cannon YouTube.
